    The end result is an issue full of potential for a fulfilling and meaningful series. This seems to be following a general pattern of sequels often being a letdown and the third attempt in the trilogy being something more meaningful. This was true with the Wonderland trilogy, and appears to be true here as well. Ideally the creative team will be able to follow the pattern of the Wonderland series and to roll over this series into something more consistent as these are some of the most interesting and compelling characters of the Grimm Fairy Tales universe.

    Stronger visuals would have made this a solid A, but what is here is good and has me returning next month. Read Full Review

    Critical Blast - RJ Carter Nov 28, 2014

    Using the characters of The Jungle Book stories as the template for this interpretation makes for a unique storytelling opportunity, and Miller appears to be taking full advantage of that. Michele Bandini's artwork, while not overly detailed, still works wonderfully here, giving the animal denizens of Kipling a pseudo-anthropomorphic style, possessing qualities of expression while sticking closely to the natural appearance of the animal. The story is unhindered by a ton of backstory, while still managing to weave a number of separate plots around a central nexus. Kipling would be an nice place to be able to visit regularly, once the mini-series is completed. Read Full Review

    Grimm Fairy Tales presents Jungle Book: Fall of the Wild may have some way to go before it has me captivated, but it's premise, and quick catch-up certainly has me hooked for more. Recommended. Read Full Review

    The Jungle Book: Fall of the Wild, takes the old tale in new directions as Mark L. Miller uses war as his backdrop to tell a new story in this well-traveled road. While this first issue is mostly set up and offers little in substance the pieces are there for Miller to tell an entertaining story with a topical message. Bandini's art is simplistically beautiful as the color and character designs really make each page an enjoyable viewing. The Jungle Book: Fall of the Wild is an okay first issue that suffers from a lack of back-story but what it promises could become a very interesting direction for the classic tale. Read Full Review
